This IQP is the continuation of an IQP completed by Liu et al (1998). This IQP studies distribution in the plastics industry. In this IQP, research was performed by literature review, email questions, survey, and telephone and personal interviews to examine the field of supply chain management and distribution in the plastics industry. Network marketing in the plastics industry is also examined from a previous IQP. Conclusions are made based on the findings from all of these sources and statistical analysis on data gathered.
